Elliot was waived Tuesday by the Cowboys, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.
The move was likely made in order to make room for the return of Damontre' Moore (suspension) to the active roster. The Cowboys traded with the Packers for Elliot at the start of the regular season and was serving as a depth option at linebacker.
The Cowboys traded away a conditional 2018 seventh-round draft pick for Elliott on Sunday. He was dealing with a back issue throughout training camp, but it was never considered to be serious. He figures to provide linebacker depth entering the season.
Elliott (back) is considered day-to-day, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.
Elliott's status for Thursday's preseason finale remains in limbo. The team has noted that Elliott wavers pretty frequently in terms of how he's feeling, but he expects to be good for the season opener. As it currently stands, Elliott is in line to function as a depth linebacker this season in Green Bay.
Elliott exited Saturday's preseason game against the Broncos with a back injury.
This injury likely stems from the back problem Elliott was dealing with in practice this week. It isn't clear how much time he could miss.
